Elliotte Friedman on Edmonton’s 630 CHED, on the notion of the Islanders trading for Max Pacioretty and Philipp Grubauer in their continued attempt to impress John Tavares and convince him to stay:

“I think if the Islanders really want to go for it, I wonder if they go after Panarin,” said Friedman. “I have a theory here. If I was Columbus, I’d go for it next year. Especially after seeing Washington climb the mountain this year. I think Columbus is really good. I think they’re a really good team… They were a crossbar away from going up 3-0. I think they’re really close. I think they’re really good.

“I think they have good fans too. I wonder, do you say to your fans: ‘Guys, we’re all in and we’re going for it next year and we’re keeping Panarin and we’re keeping Bobrovsky. If they walk they walk, but we want to take one more shot with this group.’ And then they’ll have cap room.

“Artemi Panarin says right now he doesn’t want to sign in Columbus – maybe that changes, maybe not. But If I’m in the New York area with a big Russian-speaking population, I’m taking a shot at it.

“Plus, they’re trying to get Tavares to sign, and that’s another reason I’m taking a shot at it. But I think if you’re the Islanders and you have your pick of the guys you want to go after, I think Panarin is first on that list and then you go into the Skinners, the Paciorettys, and the guys who are good players – but just not on his level.”

Friedman still wondering if the Isles take a stab at Panarin.

I can't see it happening for a few reasons which you're all aware of.

I think he could plug a bunch of holes and make the team competitive with a real coach. It would be monumental but getting a legit 2nd line center and hoping barzal continues to improve may be not as horrible a situation as it may sound.

You could be right, cpt. I have to adjust my thinking a little in that Lou is able to multi-task, as opposed to Garth who had trouble walking and chewing gum at the same time. But I just have this feeling that, while Lou could plug some holes and get the Isles back to the playoffs, it's hard to envision them making a deep run without JT....

Yeah don't get me wrong it would be real tough but barzal is the real deal as we all know. Get a legit 2nd line center, sign kovalchuck, make some trades for defenseman and our bottom 6 which isn't real hard to find and we have a decent team. It's not impossible and we would have the cap space to facilitate it.

It would be awesome the guy is dynamic but it's completely unrealistic to think it'll happen. Friedman is spitballing into the abyss

I agree Cpt. Very difficult without JT but not impossible especially with Lou and Trotz and having Barzal to plug into 1C is huge.
